CFD and bubble column reactors:simulation and experiment

Cartland Glover, Gregory; Generalis, Sotos C. and Thomas, Niele H. (2000). CFD and bubble column reactors:simulation and experiment. Chemical Papers, 54 (6A), pp. 361-369.

Abstract

The simulation of two-phase flow in bubble columns using commercially available software fromFluent Incorporated is presented here. Data from a bubble column with a ratio of height to thecolumn diameter of 5 : 1 are compared with simulations and experimental results for time-averaged velocity and Reynolds stress proles are used to validate transient, two-dimensional simulations.The models are based on multiphase biological reactors with applications in the food industry. An example case of the mass transfer of oxygen through the liquid phase is also presented.
